Overview

About the property

We have two Units a Garden Unit and a Pool. All units sleep 2. Full kitchens

'Neston' is on 2 acres of property, located in a very quiet and secluded neighborhood.

Enjoy the Beautiful Views of Harrington Sound one of the most Beautiful inlets in Bermuda.

Harrington Sound is a wonderful inland lake in Bermuda surrounded mainly by Hamilton parish and Smiths parish. There is a small narrow inlet that connects this lake to Atlantic ocean, known as the Flatts inlet.

The water in this lake mostly flows in through the underwater caves and subterranean passages. The sound has been named after Lucy Harrington, a lady from the Elizabethan days who did a lot for the Parish.

Harrington sound has many small islands in it like the Trunk island and Rabbit Island. Some of them are inhabited through out the year.

The water area is excellent for activities like swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, windsurfing etc. Although there are many types of fish that you can find here, over the years the population of shell fish like the scallops have been steadily decreasing.

The Large Studio makes you feel at home, away from home. The Kitchenette features refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, pots pan and utensils. Daily cleaning and linen service can be available at a price.

There is an ample supply of towels for both the beach, pool and bath.

A King-size bed accommodates two. Internet service is provided FREE so that you can stay in touch with others, or your office. Flat Screen Television and Telephone.

'Neston' is in walking distance to the Beach, or catching the Bus. It is about 5 min away from two of Bermudas' BEST attractions, the Aquarium and Zoo and the Crystal Cave.

If you desire a mixture of relaxation and quietness than 'Neston' is for you.

If our Calendar indicates that it is booked, check with us as we may be able to accommodate you in our Garden Unit.

About Wayne Furbert

Why Wayne Furbert chose Bermuda

The property is located in one of the most beautiful areas in Bermuda on just under 2 acres. We have had great reviews over the years. The last review was 2011 because someone loved the house so much, that they rented the whole property from April 2011 - March 2013.

What makes this apartment unique

Many mornings you can wake up and look at the Ocean - Harrington Sound, which is an inlet in Bermuda, the water is very calm, like glass and crystal clear. You can exercise and walk around the property. It is very peaceful and quiet. You can swim in the pool or off our dock in the ocean.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed staying at your home and on your fabulous island. I really hope we can find the resources to come over again in the not too distant future.

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited "Neston" on August 5th - 9th, 2017. We were so surprised when we saw the view! It's hard to tell, in a picture, how gorgeous it is. We had the room in front of the pool, and were more than satisfied with the accommodations. We did all of our swimming and snorkeling in the Harrington Sound, which is easily accessed from stairs (amazing) on the property ....bring water shoes. The only thing that was slightly challenging was transportation. Once we realized that we could walk to the post office and buy bus/ferry passes, we were all set. There are two places to buy food within walking distance, and Shelly Bay Beach is walking distance as well, but we chose to swim in the Sound. Wayne, the owner, and his family are very helpful and kind. One last tip...set up your cab ride, back to the airport, prior to your last day. Great vacation!

Beautiful house, helpful host, great location

  • 5 of 5

The property itself is great. The location is central. Short walk from a bus stop (on one of the main lines that runs regardless of weekends and holidays), a gas station that has basic food supplies (also where you can order sandwiches and other fast food that is surprisingly good). The property also has access to the ocean, a beach nearby, and a pool.

Our unit was clean, well equipped, and as described. The WiFi went down for a few hours and was fixed almost immediately (we weren't in the unit anyway).

Finally, Wayne is a fantastic host. He was helpful and kind. Answered all of our questions without issue.

Would definitely stay here again!

Amazing vacation...loved the property!

  • 5 of 5

The place was just as described in VRBO. Clean, comfortable and had a great location close to the grocery story and beach. There were lots of great things to do near by. The owner was very personable and welcoming. I would recommend this place in a heart beat.

Neston Place - Bermuda

  • 5 of 5

We loved, loved our recent stay. The property had fabulous views. It is located in between both St. George and Hamilton. We rented a scooter to get around the island. The house had a nice large pool. The Poolside Unit studio was a perfect size with plenty of room and nice breezes. We only used the air conditioner one afternoon. We sat on the porch every morning and night. We had the use of Kayaks at our disposal as well. We used the grill by the pool for dinner a couple of nights. There were 2 rain ponchos in the closet which we unfortunately had to use, but it was a great touch to have those available to us. The owner of the property, Wayne, was super nice and helpful during our entire stay. We so enjoyed talking to him and learning more about Bermuda, its history, its politics and it's people. His family was very nice and helpful as well. We only wish we could have stayed longer. We were so sad to leave after having stayed a week. We will MOST DEFINITELY return - one of our best vacations EVER!

My only suggestion would be to bring paper plates, bowls, cups and utensils if you plan on eating a lot at the property, (which we did), and don't want to wash dishes. The unit itself had minimal silverware and dishes. There is a grocery store, pizza place and gas station very close to the property as well.
